Subject:  Printing of Forms Using New Hardware

Advisory Date:  4/25/06                                 Implementation Date: Immediately

Advisory Number:  T06-06



With the installation of the new FRVIS hardware, there are several changes that have been made to the printing of forms.


Form HSMV 82041, Application for Vehicle/Vessel Certificate of Title – This form will now print in duplicate on plain paper.  The old pre-printed forms should not be used with the new printers.


Form HSMV 82013 (Rev. 04/03), Certificate of Destruction (CD) – The top copy of the form should be removed and placed into the manual feed tray face up, head first.  Two plain paper HSMV 82041s will print, then a plain paper copy of the CD and the last item to print will be the secure CD form. You will need to press the ONLINE button when the light flashes.  The carbon copy of the old HSMV 82013 will not be used and may be discarded.  The secure CD form and the plain paper copy go to the customer.  Once the current inventory of CD forms is exhausted, we will order the next supply as a blank single sheet (no carbon) similar to the title certificate.  We estimate that we have a 6 month supply of the old CD forms on hand at this time.


Form HSMV 85018 (Rev. 01/98), Temporary Operational Permit (TOP) - Only one copy of this form is printed on plain paper.  The pre-printed HSMV 85018 will no longer be used.  Do not discard any unused TOP forms. They have audit control numbers on them and must be returned to the department for disposal.  Forms should be mailed to: Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, 2900 Apalachee Parkway, Room AB10 / MS 38, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0500.  Please indicate that these are unused forms and the county and agency they are coming from.


Check Validations – Validations will be done with the manual feed tray, using the paper guides to center the check. 


Samsung Paper Trays for Non-Fast Title Printers – The manual feed tray will be used for check validation and the Certificate of Destruction.   You may need to press the ONLINE button when it flashes to initiate a manual feed on some of the Samsung printers. The middle tray on the Samsung printer will be used for printing all plain paper FRVIS print jobs.  The bottom tray will not be used at this time.  When the registration is redesigned it will feed from the bottom tray and the Datamax printer will be eliminated.


Fast Title Printers – The title paper should be placed in the bottom tray, face up, with the lien satisfaction inserted first.  The lowest control number should be on the top of the stack of title paper when printing more than one title.  The offices that have been installed up to this point were given instructions on how to print using a different method.  Those offices will be retro-fitted in the near future.


We will provide you with any updated information as it becomes available.  If you have any questions or need further clarification, please contact your Tax Collector Helpdesk Representative.
